    Make sure the Lindorms are well-disciplined and trained in working together.

    Focused sonic attack = fuckwin.

    The aim is to take down the Masters and utterly purge their creepy underwater cities. Failing that, hit them so hard that they'll withdraw into the depths and not dare meddle with affairs on the surface again.

    Preparations do not take long to complete.

    The lindorms descend upon the Masters' underwater city. They are quickly spotted and soon the Masters along with their fish-like humanoid servants set out to face them.

    Together with Shyla, you channel the cleansing spell through the lindorms. As the cloud of mucus surrounding the Masters disappears, they become agitated, even panicked. They quickly turn tail, leaving their servants to fight your forces.

    With no competent leadership, the fishmen are quickly obliterated by the lindorms in a show of violence and gore.
    >> Reality !ta922ttXCI 10/10/09(Sat)19:27 No.6218503

    They have no brains, but connected to each other in a hivemind network. But still, they had no thoughts. They were only reacting to stimulai.
